Steffen's Diary

Posted on 7 December 2001  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Normally I love to play at Charlton but, okay, I have five yellow cards and I'm suspended. Never mind, I think the team is strong enough to do well there.

It doesn't matter who is injured or suspended, we have a lot of good players now and that helps us.

I was taken off at half-time against Bolton on Monday but for me the most important thing is that the team wins.

Of course you are disappointed not to play 90 minutes but that is part of my character and every professional likes to play.

We turned the game around in the second half and we deserved to win that game.

When I look at the season so far we've only had one bad game, at Blackburn.

The rest of the games okay we haven't always played wonderfully but they've been exciting to watch and in a lot of games, especially against the top teams, we played well and didn't deserve to lose.

Games like Newcastle, Sunderland, now Bolton, these are very hard games but we came through them.

But we can't be too happy. We have to keep our feet on the floor. It is only half-season and we cannot say now we are in a European position but that will come if we work like this for the rest of the season.

Everyone at the club enjoys the football and enjoys playing for Tottenham.

It is not just hard work, it is everything now. We work hard without the ball but we play very well with the ball, create chances all the time and that makes me happy and positive for the future.

We are consistent at the moment, comfortable and enjoy playing every game. I think that is a season when maybe you can be one of the winners in the end. That makes it even more exciting.
